Create a Mindful Workplace that Benefits Employees. . .
and Your Organization’s Bottom Line

There’s been a shift happening in the workplace lately. More and more employees want to feel a sense of purpose in what they do, and a real connection to the organization’s mission. They’re often not satisfied remaining at an organization where they don’t.

Technological distractions and dissatisfaction at work are leading to alarming levels of employee disengagement. Only 33% of U.S. workers are now actively engaged at work, according to a comprehensive 2016 Gallup study. A full 67% of workers said they are either not engaged or are actively disengaged.

This is having real consequences for organizations - both with employee productivity and retention, and with organizations' bottom lines.

Here’s What’s Possible for Your Organization

According to The Gallup Organization, "Companies everywhere have opportunities for greater productivity -- and are leaving money on the table. Gallup's latest meta-analysis shows that compared to business units in the bottom quartile, business units in the top quartile of employee engagement:

  • Are 21% more profitable
  • Are 17% more productive
  • Have 10% better customer ratings
  • Experience 41% less absenteeism
  • Suffer 70% fewer safety incidents"

People-centered organizations are solving these issues by putting people first. They’re putting the responsibility for engagement and meaning on the organization, not the employee.

Creating a People-Centered Strategy . . .

“An overarching belief in caring for every human being in your organization is a powerful shift in values with a direct, positive impact on the organization’s culture.

“Recognizing that people must be at the center of corporate strategy is not just about being kind and good - it enables true engagement and thereby high performance. To do otherwise is a recipe for disengagement, dissatisfaction, and, ultimately, sub-optimal performance.”

- From Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter’s new book, The Mind of the Leader, being published by Harvard Business Review Press in March 2018
